NIAGARA – Niagara Regional Police have called a recent incident involving assault “senseless.”
Three people were arrested in connection with an incident that took place early in the morning of Sunday, July 21.
Police say a group of friends was walking eastbound on Regional Road 20, after leaving Summerfest in Pelham.
Police say a passing car stopped and an occupant accused the group of throwing something at the car as it passed.
According to police, the trio that exited the car assaulted three of the pedestrians, and two of the pedestrians, both males aged 23, suffered significant facial injuries requiring medical attention.
Charged with two counts each of assault causing bodily harm are Mark Korolenchuk, 22, of Thorold; Christopher Kulakowsky, 23 of Niagara-on-the-Lake and Alisha McDonald, 23, of Welland.
These matters are currently before the courts.
